The mission of El Shaddai Bethlehem Ministries is to reclaim the founding purpose of God for the City of Bethlehem, that it may become an agent of redemption and transformation in the region, the nation and the world through prayer, worship, and the Word.

Bethlehem was the central location for all of the Moravian missionary activity in North America. Its existence was the fulfillment of Count Nicolaus Zinzendorf's dream:

“The purpose for our coming into this region was not on account of making a living or for freedom of conscience --we had no lack of both--but the desire to also communicate to others that, which we know will further the eternal welfare.”
